BOSTON, MA. -- The Lesley Women's soccer team earned a hardfought victory over the Emerson Lions on Tuesday night by a score of 2-1. The win puts the Lynx at 6-1 on the season and the Lions fall to 6-2.
INSIDE THE BOXSCORE:
- Both teams came into the match with only one loss on the season, setting up for a big showdown for the Charles River Cup.
- Tayla Mayberry got the scoring started with a header in the 7th minute for her fourth goal of the season. It was the second time in the past two games that Mayberry opened the scoring.

- In the 78th minute, Alexa Ingersoll's equalized for Emerson. Ingersoll's first goal of the season kept the Lions in the game late.
